Now called Zorba's; good food, prompt service

This restaurant is now known as Zorba's Small World Cafe. Had a gyro dinner (gyro meat, sauce, greek salad and pita quarters). Promptly served and very tasty. The waiter was also very friendly. Had bbaklava for dessert and it was just a little stale, but still good. Recommended.

Several years ago Zorba's from the Market Place in downtown Roanoke moved in with Bobbi-Jo's. Zorba's was always known in the valley as the best Greek food and amazing Gyro's. The restaurant is now called: Bobbi-Jo's Restaurant and Zorba's Small World Cafe. My nephew loves their Gyro's and I have fallen in love with their cheese steak hoagie. They are... More

Pancakes were great just as you would expect at a place with the word pancake in the name. The food came out in a reasonable amount of time even the place was very busy. We will definitely be going back.

"Zorba" has excellent food. Open for dinner only on Friday night; no beer/wine/mix. My wife loves the "Jamaican Joe's Chicken", I 'leave it to Zorba' to sample what he feels like fixing that week. Have not been disappointed in several visits - we go about every other week since discovering the place two months ago. Good friendly service, "Zorba" comes... More

Older building, old interior but the food is good, the waitress was exceptionally sweet....there was a slight difference in the menu price and what I was charged and when questioned, I was told one price was breakfast price and the other the lunch price....BTW Breakfast is...

Quite an interesting place whose owner, chief, and servers want to please. The men choose Jamaican Joe's Delight and I choose Moussaka. Food was very good and the chef came out and talked with us. There weren't too many customers although he told us the night before--a Friday--the place was completely filled. The outside is nondescript and one would thing... More
